Julia moved to Foster in South Gippsland from the Mornington Peninsula in October 2019 and was offered a brand new career in real estate with One Lifestyle Real Estate within two days of her arrival. With her previous work in national and international managerial sales, marketing and mentoring, Dean Jones (the agencies principle) knew Julia's unique professional skills and background, relationship and personal networking ability, and her extensive knowledge of digital marketing, would make her a perfect fit to work with his clients and the high quality lifestyle properties focus of One Lifestyle Real Estate. Julia says “I met Dean while extensively researching and looking for my own property in South Gippsland over a two year period and was always impressed by his professionalism, relaxed manner and ethics. I was a very fussy buyer, we had many discussions about the local property market and I knew we both saw great potential here and thought the same way about Real Estate, so when he offered me this job in this stunning area I jumped at the chance". Julia grew up in country England on a large rural property where her family grew most of their own food. The 200 year old family business, John Barber Hertford Ltd, was an agricultural seed and feed merchant and the family where deeply embedded in the local farming community. In addition to her corporate background, she's a talented cook and knowledgable foodie with over 3500 published recipes, many of which she also styled and photographed. Julia owned one of Australia's first digital content marketing companies, creating and managing very large online communities and working with leading food brands and retailers. "As a very recent South Gippsland resident I see the area with fresh eyes everyday and I'm blown away by what I see. Working for One Lifestyle Real Estate, I'll be able to offer vendors professional marketing advice and experience and a energetic sales campaign that will directly target and be relevant for sea/tree change buyers looking for that desirable country escape.” I look forward to meeting you in the near future and discussing your needs.
